Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. Working together, can help create neighborhoods, communities, and a world in which every child can thrive. Visit website to download free ACEs Prevention Resource. This is a resource to help states and communities leverage the best available evidence to prevent ACEs from happening in the first place as well as lessen harms when ACEs do occur.

"You may try to change in ways that allow you to be more healthy and happy, but this is done because you care about yourself, not because you are worthless or unacceptable as you are. Perhaps most importantly, having compassion for yourself means that you honor and accept your humanness. Things will not always go the way you want them to. You will encounter frustrations, losses will occur, you will make mistakes, bump up against your limitations, fall short of your ideals. This is the human condition, a reality shared by all of us. The more you open your heart to this reality instead of constantly fighting against it, the more you will be able to feel compassion for yourself and all your fellow humans in the experience of life." -Dr. Kristin Neff

Mental health symptoms, such as feelings of sadness or anxiousness, are real, common, & treatable. New experiences are possible. These tools are, by no means, a way to diagnose an individual. Rather, this is a tool to recognize where you may be experiencing stress and provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your lived experiences. These tools are most useful when deciding if therapy is the next step for you and can be used when discussing about current issues with a licensed professional.
Do you know what your attachment style is? Your attachment style is formed during early childhood as a result of the interactions, experiences and perceptions that you encounter. Your attachment style ultimately is what affects how you may form adulthood attachments and may determine the ways in which you behave in your relationships. *Note: I would like to acknowledge that the questions asked in this quiz use binary language that may not be inclusive of all nurturing or experiences.
